Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are pivotal regulators of genome structure and gene expression. LncRNAs can directly interact with chromatin-modifying enzymes and nucleosome-remodeling factors to control chromatin structure and accessibility of genetic information. Moreover, lncRNA expression can be controlled by chromatin-remodeling factors, suggesting a feedback circuit of regulation. Here, we discuss the recent advances of lncRNA studies, focusing on the function and mechanism of lncRNA– chromatin interactions.
